Paraframe I - Stainless, Fine Edge

It’s a beautifully simple, open frame knife with a fine edge locking blade that is lightweight, easy to clean and opens effortlessly. Built with a smooth stainless steel handle and a clip for secure travel, the Paraframe I is everything that an everyday carry folder should be.

This is my EDC. I am very pleased with it and it is very dependable. I stake my life on it. It opens very easy. It took awhile to get used to open it. The fault lies with my old arthritic 74 year old hands.
I bought this knife the day before Christmas. Then on Christmas I used it to cut through thin plastic and it chipped. This knife seems reliable and I would buy it again. I am contacting the company and hoping they will replace it. If not I will buy a new one. :\
I like the knife for many attributes, but the handle the design. The space on the hollow handle is enough so that you could cut yourself. I am surprised no one else has mentioned that as an issue. For that reason I wouldn't make it my survival knife...
Love this knife, dad bought it for me for $5 at a pawn shop, what a steal. But this knife really is amazing, I love how lightweight it is, and it really keeps its edge. But what I think is the most impressive thing about it is how tough it is. I was mowing my yard once and dropped it in the grass, ran over it twice with the lawn mower and not a SINGLE scratch on it ( I think it dented the mower blade). This knife is one great buy, never leave home with out it.
I believe this is the best all purpose knife made, at any price. Holds a razor edge the blade has as of yet to become wobbly and believe me it gets some rugged use. One fine knife
Awesome knife! I like the fact its easy to clean. Im in the Army & Do construction too. I have cut out chaulking in showers, cut out sinks. I love it so much, that when I forgot it at home during Range fire, I sent a person to get me another one. Thank goodiness the PX carried them! Once home I switched back to old faithful!
Only thing better would be light weight Titanium!
I will run mine thru the dishwasher & then lube it for almost no assist opening!
I’ve had this knife for about 4 years now, and have used it on many of times hiking, back packing and of course the hardest of them all…car camping. I have sharpened this knife about 5-6 times, but in my opinion, and my son’s, it has a razors edge. I love the size, weight and feel of this knife.
Just got it, very sharp, seems to be well made, perfect size
It is light, compact, and a rugged knife. I've only had it a year but man has it preformed.
P.s. KNIFEMAN just put loob on the joint to make the opening e-z
This knife is the best
its hard to open, the lock is hard, its really stiff, and its not that sharp, buy the air ranger instead of this
I bought this knife for daughter who is a Venture Scout to use and it has held up to 3 years of hard use. The only reason it was replaced this year was she lost it. She now has another one and is very happy with it
I have the older version (before they changed the logo), and it was extremely dull when I got it. Never has it been decent for use other than as a screwdriver... I've tried sharpening it and it just doesn't hold an edge. Not the Gerber I remember...
Great-until the lock wears out. Nearly sliced open my fingers with it. Other than than that, you cant get a more durable knife. I had a Presto for a few months, And had the inside begin to rust on me( yes-, I submerged it a few times.)
This is the only gerber ever to give me trouble. The liner lock wore out and no longer truely locks. I can no longer trust it.
A no-frills knife for anyone. Perfect size and weight for any pocket and a great feeling knife in the hand. I own quite a few pocket knives and this is one that I carry on a daily basis. My de facto all purpose cutting tool.
I have had this knife for 2 years. I have used the crap outta it and I EDC it every where. I have worn the finish off it and have sharpened it about 3 times. It holds an edge very well. It also sharpens up very well. The size is almost perfect for me. I w
